DP 9.05 unable to write with 512Kb on StoreOnce VSA

Hello,

I'm trying to setup DP 9.05 (windows Media Agent) and StoreOnce VSA (emulating MSL G3 tape library) as per best practices. I'm following this article https://goo.gl/uLSL6W, but when the backup job starts, it fails with error "[90:51]      Tape0:0:1:0C    Cannot write to device ([87] The parameter is incorrect. )".

If I set drive blocksize to 64Kb, the job runs.

The O.S. event viewer doesn't report anything about DP activity.

I'm doing something wrong?

Thank you

regards, Davide

  • I have just rebooted the server (MA server is the Cell Manager itself) and double checked the configuration and it is correct.
